Kindley Family Art Scholarship presentation Dec. 9

December 7, 2010 by Randy Keck

Students from three local school districts (Aledo, Brock and Springtown) are competing in the second annual Kindley Family Art Scholarship program. The art exhibit of the selected finalists will be held from 5-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 9 at the AISD Administration lobby, followed by an awards ceremony from 6:30-7 p.m. This year there are two separate categories and more than $3,000 in prizes and awards will be given as follows:

Award Categories
2D: Painting/Drawing
3D Sculpture/Photography/Digital Photography

1st = $500 each category = $1000
2nd = $300 each category = $600
3rd = $200 each category = $400
4th = $150 each category = $300
5th = $100 each category = $200

“The Kindley Family was greatly touched by the Aledo Community during the time we lived there from 1995 thru 2007. Now that all of our family members reside in different locations (New Hampshire, Chicago, Austin) we still feel very attached to the Aledo area and want to give back to this fine community through support of the art students in the local school districts,” said Lois Kindley.

More than 30 students applied for the scholarships this year. Fifteen have been chosen as finalists and ten will be selected as recipients. All applicants were asked to send in three digital images along with essays, applications about art and its impact in their lives.
